Q: It's a small world after all?

Does anybody know why the street sweepers have the tune for "It's a small world after all" blaring out of their speakers while they are washing the streets?

It's different from city to city. E.g. Changsha street washing trucks are blaring some xmas tune.... only 279 days until xmas, where are you saxy santa.

I thought that it had something to do with Nixon's visit - all those years ago. You know "We bring you gout and Disneyland"

Yesterday I was at McDonald's in Daqing and the Christmas tunes were still in full force.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
